ABSTRACT

End stage renal disease is a huge issue worldwide. This study was done to understand the relationship between complications and co morbids in patients of ESRD. We had 46 patients between the age group 23–77 years, mean age group was 41-60 years who urgently initiated dialysis therapy at Holy Family Hospital, Rawalpindi Medical University between June 2020 and July. We had 29 males and 17 females. 29 patients (63%) were hypertensive & diabetic, while 5 (10.9%) patients had hypertension only, whereas 12 patients (26.1%) had no comorbidities. Uremic encephalitis occurred in 20 (43.5%) of patients, while 19 (41.3%) patients developed pulmonary edema. Sepsis developed in 7 (15.2%) patients. Hypertensive patients developed pulmonary edema in 3 (60%) of the patients, followed by Uremic Encephalitis and sepsis in 1 patients (20% each). 15 patients (51.7%) of ESRD patients with hypertension and diabetes both developed Uremic Encephalitis, followed by Sepsis in 9 patients (31%) and pulmonary edema in 5 patients (17.2%). Our study had certain limitations, because of time constraints we could not retain patients for much longer period to observe changes in various other parameters. Controlling blood pressure and blood sugar levels can lead to a decrease in the development of various complications as well as co morbids in ESRD patient, thus decreasing the number of hospital visits and increasing survival rate leading to decreasing the burden on our health care system.

Keywords: ESRD, morbids.
